LA Makerspace is a non-profit member-driven family friendly community for makers, tinkerers, and DIYers of all ages to create and collaborate.

Contact Info: http://www.lamakerspace.com/contact

Our mission is to provide a place where youth can make and learn alongside adults and where members can work on their own projects while learning new, unique maker skills through our workshops, on-going interest-based programs, mentorship, and peer learning environment. We offer affordable single classes, multi-day workshops, access to equipment, and member work & storage space.

Our volunteers, mentors and instructors hail from different backgrounds and skill sets, including: Software Engineers, Hardware Engineers, Artists, Game Designers, Scientists, Teachers, Filmmakers, Roboticists, Rocket Scientists, Librarians, Executives, Entrepreneurs, Moms, and Dads dedicated to the proposition that making things is essential to creating an awesome society. This diversity of talents and interests is currently reflected in our Board of Directors.

Currently, we have a one year fiscal sponsorship under the umbrella organization, home&community, inc., and we are in the process of getting our own 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
